Shelburne's giant chair becoming popular attraction
One of the beauties of being self-employed and owning a seasonal business is the opportunity to do fun stuff in the off-season, something that Dave Redston took to heart when he built the chair, which measures 9 feet tall, 7 feet wide and stands 4 feet off the ground. It sits in the front parking lot of the Timberland Campground on busy Route 2.
He said that during the winter of 2012, “I took an actual chair, measured it and multiplied by three” to come up with the big chair. Over a period of about a week, he built the chair in the campground’s game room and placed it outside in early 2013.
“In March or April of that year, we towed it out front with our little Ranger (a four-wheel drive utility vehicle) and almost every day from the day we put it out there, people have been sitting out there and having their pictures taken.”
Redston said, “I keep threatening my wife to make it bigger.”
The good-natured threat is partially borne of customer demand, said Redston.
